I'm Leif Pagrotsky, the Consul General of Sweden in New York - ask me anything!
I've been the Consul General of Sweden in New York since 2015. It's my job to promote Sweden when it comes to trade and investment, culture and the arts. My office also provides consular services to the Swedish community in our district (nine states in northwestern U.S.) I'm a former social democratic politician and economist, and I held several cabinet-level ministerial positions in the Swedish Government 1996-2006. You can connect with me on Twitter @leifpagrotsky, Facebook @Pagrotsky, and Instagram @Pagrotsky
You can start posting your questions right now! Starting at 11 am EST, I’ll answer them!
